The difference between ordinary scanner guns and industrial scanner guns

Ordinary scanners and industrial scanners are two common barcode scanning devices, and they have some differences in design and functionality. Here are the general differences between them:

Durability and adaptability to the environment:

Common scanners are usually designed to be lightweight and suitable for light use scenarios such as retail stores or office environments. They are usually made of plastic or lightweight materials and have relatively low durability.

Industrial scanners are specially designed for industrial environments and have higher durability. They typically feature rugged metal housings that can withstand harsh industrial conditions such as dust, moisture, vibration, and temperature changes.

Scanning capabilities and speed:

Industrial scanners usually have more powerful scanning capabilities. They are able to read a wider range of barcode types, including low-contrast, blurred or damaged barcodes. Industrial scanners can also read barcodes at longer distances and even scan on vibrating or moving objects.

Ordinary scanners mainly focus on scanning common one-dimensional barcodes, and may have less support for complex or special types of barcodes.

Connection methods and interfaces:

Ordinary scanners are usually connected to computers or mobile devices through standard interfaces such as USB, wireless Bluetooth or wireless radio frequency. They offer simple plug-in connections and are easy to set up and use.

Industrial scanners usually have a wider variety of interface options to adapt to different industrial equipment and systems. They may support serial interfaces (such as RS-232), Industrial Ethernet, or other proprietary interfaces.

Dust and water resistance:

Industrial scanners usually have better dust-proof and waterproof performance to cope with the intrusion of dust, water droplets or other liquids in industrial environments. They may have an IP rating, such as IP54 or IP65, to provide a level of protection.

The dustproof and waterproof performance of ordinary scanners is relatively low, and they are usually unable to adapt to similar harsh environments.
